LightGrid Outdoor Wireless Control System

LightGrid Outdoor Wireless Control System

The smartest grid on the block.

As energy efficiency and savings drive outdoor street and roadway lighting demands, control means much more than turning on the street lights at dusk. Control means being able to program every fixture, on every street, individually. To brighten areas when more light is needed―or to dim them when it’s not. And to detect and correct problems quickly to minimize complications. 

At Current by GE, we offer you that kind of control with LightGrid, and we make it easily accessible anytime, anywhere. GE brings intelligent design to a simple, easy-to-use system that puts municipalities and transportation departments in complete control, delivering the energy efficiency, flexibility and low-maintenance functionality that cuts costs.

New Cat-M Point to Point

Current, powered by GE is pleased to announce the addition of a new Cat-M Point to Point version of LightGrid Outdoor Lighting Control System. The new Cat-M version extends LightGrid’s capabilities to cover areas where light poles are farther apart such as Highways, Toll Roads, and Parking Lots. 

No matter the “location” Current has an Outdoor Control Solution whether through RF Mesh, Cat-M technologies or hybrid system using both.

 

LightGrid Outdoor Wireless Control System (CATM Point to Point Network)

Applicable Fixtures: Cobra Heads, High Mast, Post Tops, Area Lights

Recommended Use Case/Applications: Areas with far distances between poles such as highways, toll roads, parking lots, and malls

System Architecture:

CATM Point to Point Network: Node >> Content Management Server

Nodes reside on top of each light fixture, data travels directly from each node back to the server, without the need of a Gateway. Perfect for areas with sparse pole locations such as highways, toll roads and parking lots. User friendly web based interface that provides real time data for a single fixture or group of fixtures, allows one to control lights remotely, as well as view the status of each of your light fixtures through a map view. One interface whether using a RF Mesh System, CATM System, or combination of both.  

 

LightGrid Outdoor Wireless Control System (Mesh Network)

Applicable Fixtures: Cobra Heads, High Mast, Post Tops, Area Lights

Recommended Use Case/Applications: Densely populated areas such as downtown, village centers, and tunnels

System Architecture:

RF Mesh Network: Node >> Gateway >> Content Management Server

Nodes reside on top of each light fixture and operate in a mesh network, communicating to each other as well as the gateway. From the Gateway, data is sent to the Central Management Server. Ideal for areas with high concentrations of adjacent poles such as downtown and city centers as well as tunnels and long underpasses. The Gateway connects nodes to the Central Management System through a standard TCP-IP interface. Optional wireline connectivity available. User friendly web based interface that provides real time data for a single fixture or group of fixtures, allows one to control lights remotely, as well as view the status of each of your light fixtures through a map view. One interface whether using a RF Mesh System, CATM System, or combination of both.
